Folio3 Azure Case Study

London, UK

Real Estate

10,001+ Employees

The Customer

Savills is a global real estate services provider listed on the London Stock Exchange with a network of more than 40,000 people in over 700 offices across the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Middle East.


The Problem

The customer is using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 on-premise and had severe issues with their existing mobility solution. It had a limited feature set and lacked some essential attributes needed by any enterprise app. They readily shifted to Folio3 mobility suite to be used by their workforce into the following areas:

The mobility suite consists of native mobile apps for iOS and Android and the responsive Web portal applications and middleware for each area. The customer had the following infrastructure and DevOps needs:

The web portals and middleware apps to be hosted in Azure

Azure single sign-on for mobile apps and web portals

Mobile apps build distribution

Apps connecting with Dynamics AX 2012 hosted on-premise

Infrastructure security & Apps monitoring

Disaster recovery

Folio3 Solution

The build and release management of multiple applications, web portals and middle wares wasn’t an easy task. The customer is also required to have a disaster recovery mechanism in place so that in case the primary region goes down everything can be replicated into another region to keep their operations running.

To resolve the issue regarding the production environment, we suggested following these steps for segregation.

Continuous integration via Azure build pipelines

Continuous delivery via Azure release pipelines

Visual App Center to build mobile apps

Infrastructure deployment by IaC

Azure DevOps automation

Azure AD Application registrations

Automation is performed for all stages

Secondary Azure region for disaster recovery
